Her single "After The Afterparty" featuring Lil Yachty debuts Oct. 28.
EARLIER // AUGUST 16:
Charli XCX will release a new album next year.
And of equal importance, tells The Fader in her lengthy new feature if she can pull such a feat off, she'll actualize a childhood dream:
“I really just wanted to be Britney Spears when I was younger.”
We'll have to wait until next year to hear Charli's new record? I'll just leave this here...
For the record, the Sucker singer told The Standard last month she planned on “putting a record out soon and it’s going to be the most pop thing I’ve done." She added: "I’m just finishing it but I can’t say anything yet. I’ve been in LA chilling and it’s great to be back in London.”
